Liquid Ginger. There are a number of “classic rock” bands in town – here’s a recommendation for the Veraflames, who gig infrequently – and this one, devoted almost exclusively to ‘70s and ‘80s covers, is the best– known, hardest–working and most alluring. Lead vocalist Ginger Fawcett has irrepressible stage presence.
